Why The Left and Its Latest Call for Civility Can Get Bent

This week, in the wake of a shooting spree of a madman, which could not have been inspired by the “vitriolic rhetoric” of any mainstream political philosophy, the people were prevented from absorbing the full impact of events by the Left’s sad, yet predictable rush to blame it on people who had absolutely NOTHING to do with it.  What a difference a year makes.  This year, those who often presume their own “enlightenment” tripped over themselves in their rush to judgment, making specific public figures upon whom they have focused their own vitriol for years somehow responsible for the shootings in Tuscon, and also took the opportunity to also make a large number of Americans (aka “the Tea Party”) unindicted co-conspirators as well.  Unfortunately, this rush to judgment, which was completely unacceptable and impermissible when a far more tragic shooting spree committed by an acolyte of the “religion of peace” [the one constantly connected to kidnappings, suicide bombings, beheadings of westerners, and an inordinate amount of rapes and riots in western European countries] ran up a much higher butcher’s bill at Ft. Hood a year ago, was not only tacitly accepted among the same people who last year preached caution and “waiting until we had the facts” as reasonable, but also taking for granted that their breathless declarations were indeed correct. 

But a funny thing happened on the way to the effigy burning.  The narrative didn’t take.

Perhaps it was the fact that many average Americans didn’t appreciate being told by coastal elites and various political operatives that they were so stupid that they were incapable of discerning between the images evoked in political speech, and reality.  Maybe they rejected the notion that the use of descriptive metaphors incited them to violence when being lied to and stolen from did not.  Maybe it was because as the facts came out, it became apparent that this troubled young man was just a troubled young man, and that there was no connection at all between his decision to shoot a Congresswoman who he had been obsessed with for years and the “hateful rhetoric” we were being told motivated this horrific act.  Maybe it was all of these things.

Regardless of the cause, many of these outlets and individuals grudgingly were forced to admit that the speech they were so quick to decry in others had nothing to do with the events last Saturday, while taking the position that it still could next time, which is why these dangerous people must be stopped.  However, this bit of frantic and hypocritical wishcasting still wasn’t gaining traction with the public as a whole.  Perhaps this is because the public has actually been paying attention for the last few years, and they weren’t as receptive to the idea that only one side of the political spectrum was guilty of such “crimes” as they might have been ten years ago.  Perhaps it is because they don’t like being bullied.  But by the time the President was finally able to put together his pep rally campaign event memorial service (Now complete with cheering, catcalls, and free T-Shirts!!!), he had his opportunity to gauge the public’s mood, and he could tailor his remarks to a “teachable moment” that elevated him above the fray that he himself has eagerly engaged in in the not so distant past:

The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives – to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy [– it did not –] but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud. It should be because we want to live up to the example of public servants like John Roll and Gabby Giffords, who knew first and foremost that we are all Americans, and that we can question each other’s ideas without questioning each other’s love of country, and that our task, working together, is to constantly widen the circle of our concern so that we bequeath the American dream to future generations.

Judging from the response to the speech, this move pleased some, but it strikes me more as a fatigue on the subject than it does the result of careful reflection.  As for myself, I take this as the latest installment of their typical game of “SHUT UP!” when met with opposition to their ideas, goals, and plans.  If the President really meant what he said, then even more than naming names, which he did not do (and which would not have been appropriate for a memorial), he could, for the first time in his political career, lead by example.  His own record on “civility” and “working together” is woefully inadequate, which is why I found his renewed call for civility self-serving and unconvincing.

This is not the first time we heard the call for civility from the President.

While running for office, Candidate Obama paid lipservice to the concept of civility, something completely forgotten when he got his opportunity to “rule”.  He again raised this call when it suited his goals of the moment.  As if we could forget such moments of “civility” like

That’s not someone who wants to “work together”.  That’s not someone interested in “Civility”.  That’s someone who will engage in lies, half-truths, and distortions to gain a political advantage.  And his supporters?  They actually do worse.

There is so very much more.  Some excellent examples of the Left’s “Civility” are found here.

It isn’t that the Left has expended so much energy and money being extraordinarily uncivil with people who don’t agree with their ideas and policies, and who don’t meet with their approval.  These things have definitely come to pass, but being an attorney, who goes to court often enough to understand how to characterize opponents, debate, and the “narrative”, it doesn’t bother me.  What bothers me is the shameless…yes I mean shameless attempt to impose a self-censorship that they cannot attain by other means, while at the same time, their own calls come on the heels of their manifestation of their own unwillingness to be “civil” and “work together”.

Let me be clear.  I don’t like what you advocate for the country.  As a student of law and history, I find your goals and agenda items diametrically opposed to the freedoms that our Founders recognized and that the Framers guaranteed.  I am repulsed by your constant drive to respond to every perceived problem with more government.  I am sickened by your constant willingness to divest the individual of any responsibility, and your apparent shock when the corresponding benefits are squandered and misused.  I resent the persistent demonization of those who take risks, because they want to reap the rewards, or because that is simply part of their nature, as someone who takes advantage of and steals from his brother.  I despise your willingness to institutionalize indolence, and build rolls and rolls of dependents and wards of the state, who can be reliably counted on to deliver votes and keep you in power.  I find it despicable that you have invaded the field of public education and have not only robbed entire generations of Americans of their own history, but have inculcated them with the belief that they must be ashamed of the drips and drabs that you reveal to them through the cracked and warped lenses of your own misbegotten perceptions.  Your efforts have been damaging to the greatest engine of innovation and scientific advancement in the last three centuries, and I condemn you for your pernicious attempts to snuff out the single brightest light of mankind’s freedom that the world has ever known.

I can’t “work together” with you, because we have very different beliefs and ideas about the future of this country.  You want a nation that is no different from any other.  One where the government is not just in my toilet bowl and my light sockets, but in determining my paycheck, and what part of my labor that I get to keep for myself.  In what I power my vehicle with, and what vehicle it is.  In the brightness of the light in my dining room and bathroom.  In how I choose to defend my family and what I eat.  In what I and others say.  In what I read, and what I listen to and watch on television, and ultimately, what I think.

I want none of these things.  I want the freedoms that our forebears wanted for us.  I want the right to earn as much money as I feel like working for.  I want the right to hire the right person for the job, not be forced to meet a nebulous and undefinable “diversity” criteria.  I want the right to drive a Gaia-raping pavement predator, and fill the tank with the oil squeezed from the pelts of baby seals if that is what delivers the best performance for my money.  I want a world where people have not just read the Constitution, the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers, but understand them.  I want to live in a society that is not wedded to the idea that every society that is different is automatically equal to our own.  I want to live in a society that celebrates its achievements instead of glossing them over and dwelling on our failures.  I want to live in a society where I am free to waste what belongs to me in whatever fashion I wish, be it opening the windows and doors and turning up the heat in the winter, or having a double cheese and meat pizza after a quadruple bypass without my government, which exists to guarantee and defend my freedoms, tell me that I can’t, because it has that has assumed that power over me.

In such a situation, where the ideological lines are so clearly drawn, the “civility” that you get is it the civility you give.  Your civility, for decades, has to been to tell us that we are stupid.  To mock those who speak for our views.  To paint anyone who believes as we do as being stupid, ignorant, and hateful.  You have poured scorn, derision, and condescension upon us with the obliviousness of those who never gave a thought to what they were doing.  Any attempt at a dialogue which doesn’t require those on our side to start with a premise that you are correct on any of these characterizations has been met with a vehement “Shut Up!”, and now, after days of engaging in savage slander and blood libel, now you wring your hands, and speak softly of civility, either as again, trying to control the speech of others, or in hopes of being treated with greater restraint than you and yours showed me and mine since Saturday morning? 

Go to Hell.

Your orgy of hate and blame that started before the bodies even hit the floor of that Tuscon Safeway last Saturday revealed everything important to any who still had doubts about who you really are.  And I’ll be damned if I’ll be silent and polite about the people who I think are the real danger to America.  Especially after they pantsed themselves in front of the country last week.

  1. Great post, BiW – as always!

  2. My toes are frozen.

  3. TiFW – can you summarize this poat for me?

  4. I may be done for the day. I’ve still got two days of skiing, so why push it? The wind is wicked out there.

    I cannot see me night skiing. Tons of kids+ night + freezing cold = skiing FAIL

  5. Someone give me a summary of what this says

  6. I’ll do my best, Car in:

    Dear Left,
    F*** You.
    Love,

  7. That’s what I figured.

  8. Night skiing is great the first 15 minutes. After that, I can’t wait to get back to the condo.

  9. Wow. That’s a lot of words.

    You must be thirsty after all that writing.

    Coke? http://tinyurl.com/657jskb

  10. Night skiing is also awsome on a thursday night, when it’s not packed. Not on a cold Saturday night.

    If we’d gotten year at a reasonable hour last night (which we didn’t) night skiing would have been fun then too.

    Tonight? Not so much.

  11. Carin, what are you cooking that third night? What did you decide?

  12. Perhaps I’ll shower and check out the main lodge. Get a coffee or something. My oldest two are still out there. Youngest are in the codo. Husband’s naping.

  13. Where are you, Carin?

  14. Brats. Nice and easy.

    Tonight is burgers.

  15. Boyne Highlands.

  16. Brats. Nice and easy.

    YOU’RE EATING YOUR CHILDREN?????!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Well.

    Good thing pixels are cheap.

  22. True. Esspecially since I’m polluting deux blogs with this inciteful rhetoric.

    Does this mean I get points that I can redeem in poodle videos and pictures of kittehs that would warm my heart if I had one, mare?

  29. Pups, am I the bird or the hammer?

  30. Maybe the youtube video of all the preening cocksuckers and muff divers singing along to the “Fuck You” song? You know, to give it the right touch ot the “taste the rainbow” attitude?

  31. Are you a Baltimore fan, Windy Wolf?

  32. “Does this mean I get points that I can redeem in poodle videos and pictures of kittehs that would warm my heart if I had one, mare?”

    That is exactly what it means.

    10,000 points to be used for cases of Smart Water, Copper River salmon and possibly a nice chardonnay…for me, you don’t drink right now, right?

  33. I’ll pick up BiW’s slack in the drinking department.

  34. Thank you, xbrad. I will also do my share plus.

  35. Mare’s buying Copper River?

    Wow. I haven’t been able to afford that in ages.

    Deal. You buy it, I’ll cook it, and we’ll have an intimate meal together where we feed it to each other…all taped, of course, to feed Rosetta’s insane jealousy of our special “alone time” together. 😉

  36. Are you a Baltimore fan, Windy Wolf?

    I think you’re confused. My indian name is “Big Wind From Mouth”, not to be confused with TBOM, whose indian name is “Big Wind From Exit Door”.

  37. I would LOVE it if you cooked it.

    I use to buy it at Costco during that two to three week window it’s available. I don’t know how they did it, although it was not cheap, it was priced at a point I didn’t think twice about buying it (and I never buy rib eye or New York cuts of beef because they are too expensive for me.)

  38. My one word comment on law bitch’s poat: Ditto.

    Excellent on all fronts.

  39. I think the lunatic left and their willing accomplices in the media forgot one very important thing: They are in the minority. That was made quite clear in November. They just don’t realize that they have indeed awoken a sleeping giant.

    And they think they are going to win this battle for the hearts and minds of the majority of Americans by insulting them? Didn’t they learn anything when their pathetic attempt to paint the Tea Partiers as racists failed miserably? Obviously not.

    These smears are working on a smaller and smaller percentage of people, those who have already bought into the politics of lies and vile personal attacks. In other words, the extreme left. Those whom more and more people are finally recognizing as the lying, unscrupulous, unethical scum that they are.

    You know how you can tell that these lowlife scum are losing? They are getting louder, more vile, more persistent and more ridiculous. And thankfully, the American people are not as stupid as they would like to believe.

  40. Ok, i just got out of the bath.

    What did I miss?

  41. They are getting louder, more vile, more persistent and more ridiculous.

    Not unlike a child having a temper tantrum…..

  42. Yes, Dick – but he said it ELOQUENTLY 😉

  45. So, are these whiny bastards gonna stop bitching and actually play football?

    Damn, I have never seen a game where I wanted both teams to lose so badly.

  46. Speaking of football, I don’t know if any of you saw this in the sidebar at Ace’s yesterday, but it was pretty funny:

    BREAKING NEWS:
    Practice at the Jets Stadium was delayed 2 hours yesterday after a player found a white powdery substance on the ground. Police and Homeland Security investigated. Experts determined that the white substance, unfamiliar to most of the players, was in fact the goal line. Practice will resume since the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.

  47. Ditto Wiser – enough jaw jacking and play football.

    Brilliant BiW.

  48. Did anyone see Dan Dierdorf at the beginning of this game?

  56. Oh look! A flag is down! What a shocker!!

  57. This game is dam near unwatchable. Just a pissing match so far, very little football – f’n hate both of these teams.

  58. Nice work, BiW. Your post is a good repository for the tip of the iceberg of the left’s attempts at civility.

    I didn’t think so.

  72. I cannot believe it was Charles Blow that wrote these words:

    “Now we’ve settled into the by-any-means-necessary argument: anything that gets us to focus on the rhetoric and tamp it down is a good thing. But a wrong in the service of righteousness is no less wrong, no less corrosive, no less a menace to the very righteousness it’s meant to support.

    You can’t claim the higher ground in a pit of quicksand.

    Concocting connections to advance an argument actually weakens it. The argument for tonal moderation has been done a tremendous disservice by those who sought to score political points in the absence of proof. ”

  149. Unfortunately, our neighborhood is so ancient that AT&T hasn’t deigned to make it out here yet.

    This, despite the fact that we are less than 2 miles from downtown and are one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city. Apparently retrofitting phone lines that were laid immediately after the ink on Alexander Graham Bell’s patent dried is more work than AT&T is willing to do.

    When they finally get their fiber optic cables run, we plan on switching our Internet, cell phone, and cable over (our house phone is already AT&T). Until then, we’re stuck in the cable Stone Age…..

  150. Right Elliot I think the question was ignored

  151. haven’t seen a movie in a movie theater since Bourne Supremacy.

    Is that directed at me and my booze preference?

  166. MCPO, is the drive-in in 3D?

  167. Did Wiser go to get a pedicure?

  168. Did Wiser go to get a pedicure?

    Why do you ask? Were his hands a little too rough last time?

  169. Rosie – Only until you get to the screen.

  170. Elliott – If I wanted any lip from you, I’d scrape it off my zipper.

  171. No, it was directed at Sohot and her misuse of “less”.

  172. I’m actually jealous that you have a drive-in. I wish we had one around here.

    That would be awesome in the summer.

    I would think you could make money with that since they are so rare. They should charge enough to keep the assholes out but I think a lot of people would go.

    MCPO, what does your drive-in charge?

    And do you have to worry about idiot teenagers and gangs and shit?

  173. Did anybody drive a motorcycle through anybody else’s living room today?

  174. Why do we tolerate a redistributionist, collectivist, goat raper like MCPO on this here blog?

    Because he flirts with all the wimmen so nicely.

  175. Rosie – Only until you get to the screen.

    Hahahahahahaha.

  176. MCPO, what does your drive-in charge? About $8 a piece

    And do you have to worry about idiot teenagers and gangs and shit?

    HAHAHAHA! No. But if the fire siren goes off about half the teenage boys abandon their girls and go off to fight the fire.

    The hostess here is refered to as “First Gear” by the bartenders. Why the fuck is she on, on Saturday night?

  179. Yeah, and it was interesting how they all showed up right around the same time.

  180. HAHAHAHA!! Best sockpuppeting EVER!! HAHAHAHA!

  181. Yeah, and it was interesting how they all showed up right around the same time.

  184. Would that make you the fuckweasel or the assclown?

  185. The one comment on my PAB poast from last night is a little disturbing.

  186. The theater we are going to is less popular and there are kids of all ages but I am hoping since the movie is also not the latest and greatest it might not be too bad and Rose my hair is purple

  187. The one comment on my PAB poast from last night is a little disturbing.

  191. And you people who think that drive-ins are all that in the summer have obviously never been in Texas in the summer. Between the heat, the humidity, and the mosquitos, a drive-in movie down here is almost as much fun as getting a root canal…..

  192. TiFW – You’re just a ray of sunshine, ain’tcha?

  193. Yeah I kinda have the idyllic drive-in from Grease in my mind when I think about drive-ins.

    I would hate to go to a drive in and then have to kill some old guy for cranking his 10-speaker bullshit so he can hear.

  195. We have a drive-in about 4 miles form my house that re-opened last summer (just on the weekends) after being closed for a few years. They used to play first-run flicks, but now they run classics, like ET and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    It is the only drive-in in the state.

    We haven’t gone since they re-opened, but we went occasionally in the past. Lots of fun, but definitely not a moneymaker.

  196. Hey, old man, I can’t go letting you have all the fun, now……

    Just think of it as training – someone’s gonna hafta take over for you at some point.

  197. TiFW – You just don’t get my sense of humor. I understand.

  198. Pupster, I have never inhaled….
    (But that picture is funny as heck!)

  199. They used to play first-run flicks, but now they run classics, like ET and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    Man, fuck ET. I’ve always hated that movie.

  200. Wiser – This one is only open a couple of days a week too. They show a first-run followed by a classic. Folks bring their little one in PJs and put lawn chairs in the back of their pick ups. Herself and I can talk without disturbing others, I can smoke. It is a lot of fun!

  201. Chief – we are SIMPATICO. I got it; I was giving back as good as I get.

    You and I would probably get along like gangbusters were we ever to meet – which is why it must never happen. The universe as we know it would cease to exist……

  202. Man, fuck ET. I’ve always hated that movie.

    Serious, hard-core, full penetration porn.

    Only lasted one summer before they went OOB. I think the owners did it to piss off the neighbors who were complaining about his business and wanted him out of the neighborhood.

  220. I saw Deep Throat at a drive in in the early eighties. Made a huge difference in my first wife’s head-giving technique.

  237. Dude, you couldn’t cross a lone when it comes to offensive remarks about wife #1.

    That woman almost turned me into a friar.

  238. Umm… If you were “busy” in the back seat of a Gran Torino, ya didn’t notice.

  243. I can’t believe that would have ever been legal anywhere.

    Red Bluff Drive-In Theater, Pasadena, Texas – used to play family movies, then went to XXX films for several years. Teenaged boys for miles around used to park on Red Bluff Road just outside of the theater to see the screen on the weekends.

    Until they raised the height of the fence……

  244. Garrison “Shove a Johnson Up His Ass” Keillor didn’t emcee his show tonight. There is a god.

    I had never listened to that Prairie Home Companion bullshit but when I was driving home from Nashville over the holidays, there was no good talk radio repeats on so I listened to that dreck for about 5 minutes.

    There is no way I would ever get along with anyone that liked that horseshit.

  245. These days folks are putting large flat screens out by the pool… who why would we need to drive to a drive-in?

    No pool. I live in a Hobbit Hole.

    Late 70s. Don’t think it was legal as much as it was not illegal, so they spent the entire summer trying to shut him down (and he had already made plans to sell the property at the end of the summer anyway, since he was losing money anyway) and he just kept playing porn.
